Joe Beavers, former Gold Bar Washington Mayor caught via public records in racketeering scheme
At 12:10 PM today (6/20/16), former Gold Bar Washington Mayor Joe Beavers was stalking the Gold Bar Reporter in Monroe, after public records confirm that Joe Beavers withheld public records documenting that the City of Gold Bar council members violated the Open Public Meetings Act, agreed not to report employee Karl Majerle’s tampering of the City water system, and then misappropriated over $1,300,000.00 dollars from the City of Gold Bar’s water funds to cover up his criminal racketeering scheme.
See Public Records withheld for over 8 years PRR 09092009 as of today the penalties and fees total over $1,000,000.00.
John Pennington FIRED after he killed 43 people in the Oso mudslide disaster
In late 2011, Joe Beavers threatened former Gold Bar council member Lie that he didn’t shut up “ we will charge you with a crime.” Joe Beavers physical threats to maliciously prosecute Lie were witnessed by then Gold Bar police Chief Robert Martin, and his threats to have Lie charged with a crime were a direct result of Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office illegally withholding public records involving John E. Pennington’s illegal use and dissemination of sealed non-criminal history records and mental health records of his opponents.
Illegal access to non-criminal history and mental health record is a crime under RCW 10.97 and federal laws.
In 2011, John Pennington’s Homeland Security Clearance was stripped as a result of his criminal conduct.
Unfortunately for the Gold Bar City Council ( Richard Norris, Lonn Turner, Dorothy Croshaw, Jay Prueher, Joe Beavers) and former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington, 42 U.S.C § 300i-1 mandates public officials to report tampering with the public water systems a federal crime:
Tampering with public water systems
(b) Attempt or threat
(c) Civil penalty
For over eight years, Mayor Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington ( changed her name from Berg to cover up that she plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005) and Linda Loen withheld public records confirming beyond any shadow of a doubt that the City of Gold Bar and its public officials withheld public records that amount to racketeering ( frauding out the citizens of Gold Bar of its public monies) using electronic means ( email communication).
But the City Council didn’t do it alone, they had the assistance of Association of Washington Cities ( AWC) paralegal Eileen Lawrence, and the City’s law firm of Weed, Gaffstra and Benson ( Snohomish, WA).
To assist the City of Gold Bar in covering their racketeering crimes of fraud and not reporting the federal crime of tampering with the City’s water system, the Washington State Bar Association’s (WSBA) high ranking member Geoffrey Gibbs ( convicted of fraud in the 1990s and permanently suspended from lobbying by the Attorney General of Washington State can be viewed at https://goldbarreporter.org/2016/01/29/wsba-board-and-snohomish-county-attorney-caught-filking-false-statements-with-state-offices/) stole the Gold Bar Reporter’s WSBA application file, sent it via electronic email to Thomas Gaffstra ( a friend of Geoffrey Gibbs) from the City’s law firm of Weed Gaffstra and Benson ( Snohomish) former employee Barbara Johnson.
Barbara Johnson them disseminated the stolen WSBA files to Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005) and then Hill disseminated it to Snohomish County’s Director of Emergency Management political bum John E. Pennington.
John Pennington then misused his Homeland Security Clearance to pull a spider of information as it relates to Gold Bar Reporter’s out of state family members. Snohomish County public records officer Diana Rose affirmed under oath that she removed public records from Snohomish County and delivered the Gold Bar Reporter’s mental health records to the City of Gold Bar.
When Ms. Rose was asked under oath what was the CD she illegally removed from Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management, Rose said “your mental health records.” The Gold Bar Reporter then said “Ms. Rose would it surprise you to know that I have never been treated for or even suffered from mental health issues of any kind.” Ms. Rose then started to tear up and Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Sara Di Vittorio ( both being sued for racketeering in US Federal Court) started screaming for Rose not to answer questions.
Diana Rose is also being sued for racketeering in US Federal District Court and depositions are expected to begin at the end of 2016.
The City is still illegally withholding the email communication about the stolen WSBA files. We did get partial release of an email documenting that the stolen files were disseminated via email, but Joe Beavers “stripped’ the attachment from the email in violation of Washington State Supreme Court’s holding in O’Neil v Shoreline.
Washington State is only one of a hand full of states that makes removing, tampering, of destruction of public records a felony crime.
On January 6, 2016, John E. Pennington was terminated from Snohomish County because instead of doing his job, public records released under RCW 42.56 document that he criminally harassed his opponents on the Sky Valley Chronicle. The Sky Valley Chronicle was set up by former disgraced executive Aaron Reardon to control the political message in the Sky Valley in 2007.
Public records released from King County Major Crimes Unit confirm that additional writers on the Chronicle were Kevin Thomas Hulten ( now living under an assumed name of Kevin Thomas in Los Gatos California).
Kevin Hulten’s racketeering crimes exposed first by the Gold Bar Reporters. But from a public records received today, it appears that Kevin Hulten’s little racketeering scandal unpealing one rotten layer at a time, because Washington State issued a subpoena.
A big break came last month when public records activist Arthur West threatened to sue the City for refusing to produce public records for years.
In March 2016, Snohomish County Superior Court held that the City of Gold Bar violated the Public Records Act when it withheld records relating to a WSBA complaint then Mayor Joe Beavers ordered our City clerk to write for former council member Dorothy Crohsaw.
Once Joe Beavers ordered the clerk to write the WSBA complaints, the complaints became public records. The City of Gold Bar continues to withhold records relating to the WSBA complaints Joe Beavers ordered Gold Bar clerk Penny Brenton to write and former Gold Bar council member Dorothy Croshaw falsely certified under oath she wrote.
How we know is simple: a private investigator interviewed Penny Brenton, who admitted on recording, that Joe Beavers ORDERED her to write WSBA complaints.
42 USC 1983 makes Joe Beavers misuse of taxpayers monies a clear civil rights charge; and Beavers obstruction of justice in the Karl Marjerle tampering of the City’s water system amounts to racketeering.
As a result, the City of Gold Bar’s most recent public records release we now have a enough overturn every favorable decision issued in any matter involving the county and city officials for racketeering and 1983 gross civil rights violations.
From a former council member, we know that Crystal Hill was “sexting” nude pictures of herself, just as Kevin Thomas Hulten did on Snohomish County’s iPhone.
For over eight years, Joe Beavers lied to the citizens of Gold Bar claiming that the Gold Bar Reporters request for access to the below records involved former Mayor Crystal Hill’s sexting nude pictures of herself with a Gold Bar Blackberry device.
Crystal Hill’s sexting pictures are still being illegally withheld in violation of RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act).
Below are the public records from Gold Bar relevant to this story, and Joe Beavers, Linda Loen, and Crystal Hill Pennington misappropriated over 1.3 Million dollars of the City’s water funds to conceal the 2009 Gold Bar governing body’s criminal racketeering conduct.

In 2013, the City of Gold Bar was ordered by Snohomish County Superior Court to lodge two sets of public records illegally withheld from the Gold Bar Reporters, one with 32 records stolen from the WSBA,and then disseminated by Crystal Hill Pennington into public records, and 66 pages of records herein.
I’d like our readers to know why the City failed to lodge the 66 records herein is because the 32 records it did lodge were files stolen with the assistance of the WSBA and the disseminated by Crystal Hill to Lonn Turner (Dept of Corrections, Monroe) and Snohomish County’s disgraced director John E. Pennington
( see (https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/09/17/snohomish-countys-dark-secrets-uncovered/) , Department of Corrections attorneys (working for the Attorney General’s Office in 2009, Sara Di Vittorio and Miquel Tempski) who feloniously removed public records in its effort to reduce liability to the Dept of Corrections and Snohomish County.
Recently, the Washington Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen denied access to the Gold Bar Reporter’s stolen WSBA files in the City of Gold Bar’s possession, because if released the WSBA would be abolished and exposed for criminal conduct.
This conduct amounts to racketeering and federal suits have been filed with depositions expected to start later this year.
When voting, one may consider Justice Barbara Madsen’s disrespect for our open government laws here in Washington in favor of protecting the criminals inside the Washington State Bar Association who are stealing from our elderly, as evidenced by Lin O’Dell’s Order issued by Stevens County Judge Monasmith ( see https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/10/04/license-to-steal-with-the-assistance-of-the-washington-state-bar/)
There’s over 35,000 records that the City just released after illegally withholding public records for over eight (8) years, including John E. Pennington making racist comments about President Obama inside Gold Bar public emails, so stay tuned, its going to worth the wait!
